Stand out from the crowd!
For years, business trainers have stressed the importance of "USPs" (Unique Selling Propositions).
Your USP is the unique thing that you can offer that your competitors can't. It's your "Competitive Edge." It's the reason why customers buy from you, and you alone.
USPs have helped many companies succeed. And they can help you too when you're marketing yourself (when seeking a promotion, finding a new job, or just making sure that you get the recognition you deserve.) If you don't have a USP, you're condemned to a struggle for survival – that way lies hard work and little reward.
However, USPs are often extremely difficult to find. And as soon as one company establishes a successful USP in a market, competitors rush to copy it.
In this article, we'll explore how you can use USP Analysis to help you find your USP, and to think about how youâ€™ll defend it.
